It seems that Hillary Clinton has been making a bit of a buzz lately with a trip out west wherein she announced, by not announcing, her candidacy for the Presidency in 2016. Really? Is that the best we can do; be saddled for eight years with Mrs. Welfare Reform, Mrs. Wall Street and media deregulation, and Ms. Iraq War, all rolled into one?

Vote for Neoliberal Democrats. They might drop a crumb on the floor for you to lick up.

It is now well understood that Neoliberals are not advocates of a small or stunted night watchman state. They regularly demean the state to outsiders, but that does not imply they prefer a weak state. Rather, all their political efforts are devoted to recasting the strong state as one that conforms to their doctrinal imperatives.

The utterly incompetent prosecutors at the Department of Justice politely decline to indict HBSC or any of its present or former employees. Because, you know, things like this just happen and besides some of the responsible people don’t live here, and some of them got fired and others lost their bonuses, which is punishment enough. And anyway, we can’t indict unless we find evidence that someone specifically intended to aid money laundering.

Even the 99.9th% figured out that they are garbage to their oligarch owners. No wonder the rest of us are worried about electing an oligarch president.
